Lebanese army units battled followers of a hard-line Sunni cleric holed up in a mosque complex in a southern port city, the second day of fighting that has left at least 16 soldiers dead. Afghanistan's government reaffirmed support for possible talks with its Taliban foes, but demanded full explanations on how the group was allowed to raise its flag in Qatar and display other symbols that have stalled the U.S.-led effort. Turkish police used water cannon to disperse thousands gathered in Istanbul's Taksim Square to observe a memorial for four people killed during recent anti-government protests. The officers later fired tear gas and rubber bullets, and in some cases beat people with batons, to scatter demonstrators who regrouped in side streets. less
